Junior Zoo Crew Commitment Policy

To be considered for Junior Zoo Crew, candidates must be at least 14 years old by May 31, 2024 and no older than 17 years on the last day of the session to which they apply. All candidates must submit a new application each year. First-time applicants are also required to upload a letter of recommendation in their application and attend an interview at the zoo. After the selection process is complete, all candidates are notified whether or not they have been accepted to Junior Zoo Crew by email.


All accepted Junior Zoo Crew members must attend the mandatory trainings outlined in this application and participate over the full length of their session(s). Saturday and/or holiday shifts are sometimes required.


Junior Zoo Crew is a hands-on educational program. As such, a nonrefundable tuition fee of $76.32 (tax included) for Tautphaus Park Zoological Society members, or $95.40 for non-members (tax included) is charged per session the candidate is accepted to. Tuition covers training, materials, one uniform shirt, nametag, and celebration event near the end of summer. Tuition payment information is provided after acceptance to Junior Zoo Crew. Limited scholarships may be available for qualifying applicants.


If you have not been a part of Junior Zoo Crew before, please have your letter of recommendation ready to upload BEFORE starting your application.
